Salma’s been doing fine on her own for many years, but it may amuse you to know that she finally settled down with Francois-Henri Pinault, who happens to be a French billionaire.  Oh, that’s him on the right.  So why not rock that leather hat?

Before Hollywood, she was a soap opera star back in Mexico who also played the lead role on one of Mexico‘s most awarded movies in history “El Callejón de los Milagros“. Salma sure looks great in white, as many other Latinas who have worn Bridal dresses on screen! Here are our favorites.

Tale of Tales is a MUST watch for every Fantasy film lover or fashion design student. Salma‘s wardrobe is so impeccable it‘s worthy of the real Queen of Versailles. If you watch this movie I‘m sure you‘ll end up screaming YASSS QUEEN to the TV screen.

Did you guys see “Savages” from a few years ago?  Okay, not the best movie.  But Salma?  Dios mio! She was great in it, scary, bad female.  She should play the bad guy more often, for real.

Make no mistake, when you’re as famous as Salma Hayek is, dressing down is as bold as dressing up.  And making movies as thought-provoking and controversial as Beatriz at Dinner is even more so.  Keep it up, Salma!

27. Pink Do

Salma took this look and made it her own.  Kylie Jenner?  Flick of the finger.  Gwen Stefani?  So 2001.  Trust Salma when you want to trot out a novelty hair color.  She’s a pro.

28. Lethal Purple

Salma is into her third decade of being a red carpet staple.  And with so much to show off, why not?  Somebody’s gotta look this good.

29. Frida

We would argue that Salma’s all-time boldest look was this one.  Playing celebrated Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, Salma proved the neigh-sayers wrong, took on Harvey Weinstein, and even got an Oscar nomination.  She also made Frida a thousand times more popular, the world over.  That’s pretty bold.

UPS Delivery Man Is Fired After Video Surfaces of His Anti-Latino Racist Rant

UPS Delivery Man Is Fired After Video Surfaces of His Anti-Latino Racist Rant

An unnamed UPS delivery driver has been fired after being caught using racist language when delivering a package to a Latino household. The incident occurred on December 17th.

The video, which was caught on a doorbell camera’s security footage, shows a white UPS driver appearing to be angry when delivering a package.

“Now you don’t get f—–g nothing…You can’t read and write and speak the f—–g English language,” he says while writing a “failed to deliver” notice and pasting it on the house’s front door.

The Aviles family says that the footage shows that the UPS worker never even attempted to deliver the package in the first place. He never rang the doorbell or knocked on the door. Based on that, the family has come to the conclusion that the driver intentionally withheld the package from the family out of prejudice and spite

They believe that the only way the driver could’ve known that the family was Latino was by making assumptions based off the name on the package.

“The only information this driver had that could serve as a trigger for this deep-seated hate was the name on the package,” said Forward Latino President Darryl Morin at a press conference addressing the incident.

“So what we have here is a very intentional act to ruin Christmas for somebody, for someone to spew this hateful rhetoric, and quite honestly to deceive their employer,” Morin continued.

Per UPS, the employee has now been fired. “There is no place in any community for racism, bigotry or hate. This is very serious and we promptly took action, terminating the driver’s employment. UPS is wholeheartedly committed to diversity, equity and inclusion,” UPS said in a statement. They also said they contacted the family to apologize.

But the Aviles family is still rattled that such bigoted people are out and about, letting their petty prejudices effect other people’s lives.

“The package was a Christmas gift that we eventually received after Christmas Day, but what if it happened to have time-sensitive content like an epipen or a book I needed to take a final,” said Shirley Aviles, the mother of the man who lives at the address, told NBC News. “I don’t get it. It’s just sad.”

Aviles seemed disturbed about what this incident says about human nature. “This is about the things people do when they think no one is watching them. That’s important because that’s when you see people’s true colors and that’s what’s scary,”

Here Are Some Christmas Traditions From Around Latin America

Here Are Some Christmas Traditions From Around Latin America

Christmas is a special time of year. Families have their traditions to mark the festive year and some of those traditions are rooted in culture. Here are some of the ways various countries in Latin America celebrate Christmas.

El Pase Del Niño Viajero – Ecuador

El Pase del Niño Viajero is a pageant that happens in Ecuador that lasts weeks. The parade is meant to represent the journey of Mary and Joseph. The parade highlights the religious importance of Christmas in Ecuador and is most common in the Andean region of the country.

The biggest and most important parade is in Cuenca, a deeply religious city. Citizens near the city have all day to see the parade as it starts in the early morning and runs through the late afternoon. This gives people a lot of time to make it to the city to witness the parade.

La Gritería – Nicaragua

La Gritería comes after La Purisma. La Purisma is celebrated at the end of November and is meant to celebrate the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary. La Gritería is celebrated in early December and involves literal yelling. Someone would shout “Que causa tanta alegria?” (“What causes so much happiness?”) People respond “La Concepción de María.” (“Mary’s Conception.”)

Las Posadas – Mexico

Mexican posadas are the most recognizable. Posadas take place in Mexico from Dec. 16-24, though this year they are most likely to be virtual. The posada begins with a procession in the neighborhood filled with people singing and sometimes led by two people dressed as Mary and Joseph.

Another part is the posada party. Before guests can enter, there is a song exchange with the people outside playing Joseph looking for shelter. The hosts sing the side of the innkeeper saying there is no room. Eventually, the guests are welcomed into the home to celebrate Christmas.

Aguinaldos – Colombia

Aguinaldos are a series of games played by people in Colombia leading up to Christmas. There are certain games that are common among people in Colombia. One is pajita en boca, which requires holding a straw in your mouth the entire time of a social event. Another is dar y no recibir, which is about getting people to take something you are giving to score a point.

El Quema Del Diablo – Guatemala

El quema del diablo is celebrated in early December and is a way of letting go of the previous year. People burn piñatas and effigies of the devil to let go of all negative feelings and moments from the previous year. If there was every to try a new tradition, this would be the year. Burn an effigy and banish 2020 to the past, where it belongs.
